We have developed EuMicrobedbLite A light weight comprehensive genome resource and sequence analysis platform for oomycete organisms. EuMicrobedbLite is a successor of the VBI Microbial Database (VMD) that was built using the Genome Unified Schema (GUS). In this version, the GUS schema has been greatly simplified with removal of many obsolete modules and redesign of others to incorporate contemporary data. Several dependencies such as perl object layers used for data loading in VMD have been replaced with independent light weight scripts. EumicrobedbLite now runs on a powerful annotation engine developed at our lab called Genome Annotator Lite. Currently this database has 26 publicly available genomes and 10 EST datasets of oomycete organisms. The browser page has dynamic tracks presenting comparative genomics analyses, coding and non-coding data, tRNA genes, repeats and EST alignments. In addition, we have defined 44,777 core conserved proteins from twelve oomycete organisms that form 2974 clusters. Synteny viewing is enabled by incorporation of the Genome Synteny Viewer (GSV) tool. The user interface has undergone major changes for ease of browsing. Queryable comparative genomics information, conserved orthologous genes and pathways are among the new key features updated in this database. The browser has been upgraded to enable user upload of GFF files for quick view of genome annotation comparisons. The toolkit page integrates the EMBOSS package and has a gene prediction tool. Annotations for the organisms are updated once every six months to ensure quality. The database resource is available at www.eumicrobedb.org.
